M2A2: Taxation Research And Communication
Assignment 2: Taxation Research and Communication
The current tax law system in the United States has emerged over many years from statutory, administrative, and judicial sources. These sources are continually changing and new laws are introduced at least annually.
Suppose a client has come to you with a question about corporate taxation.
Discuss your plan of action and communication with the client. Remember, the client does not have any technical background, and you need to communicate in terms he or she will understand.
Keeping this in mind, respond to the following:
1. What would be your plan of action?
2. What tax sources would you use to research the problem?
3. How would you communicate your findings to the client?
Write a three- to five-page paper in MS Word format. Apply APA standards for writing style to your work.
Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M2_A2.doc.
By the due date assigned, deliver your assignment to the Submissions Area.
